Feel the Beat of Your Hamon!
The Ripple (波紋 Hamon), is an energy used in the ancient form of martial arts, Sendō (仙道, lit. "Way of The Hermit/Wizard").
Through self-controlled respiration, a trained person can produce an energy manifesting as ripples throughout the body and identical to the energy of the Sun, in polar opposition to the energy exerted by Vampires, Zombies and the Pillar Men.
Creating a Hamon Warrior
|The demonstration of hamon in water, Source [].|
Why and how did you seek the means of harnessing the power of the sun? Was there someone in life you wanted to heal? Was there a particular vampire who haunts your memory to this day, and as such you seek a way to destroy the Stone Masks? Maybe a mysterious stranger trained you for a destiny you did not yet know. Did you train for years on a Tibetan mountain range, or were you forced to learn it at a breakneck pace with a race against time at your back?

At 1st level, you learn a form of breathing that maximizes the oxygenation and flow of blood. You have a number of Hamon points equal to the amount listed in the Hamon column of the Hamon Warrior table. All Hamon points are regained at the end of a long rest. You may spend an action to focus your breathing, regaining 1 Hamon point. You must be able to breath to do so. You also know a number of Techniques, all found at the end of this class, as listed in the Techniques column. You may change one Technique you know at the end of a long rest.
- Your Technique save DC = 8 + your Constitution modifier + your Proficiency bonus
- Your Technique spell attack bonus = your Constitution modifier + your Proficiency bonus
At 2nd level, your training has gone beyond teaching Hamon, bolstering your physical strength as well. Your unarmed strikes deal 1d4 bludgeoning damage, and you may use Dexterity instead of Strength on attack and damage rolls.
At 3rd level, your body has been greatly strengthened. Your unarmored AC is equal to 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Proficiency bonus.
Ability Score Improvement
When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.
Calm Mind, Strong Body
At 7th level, your AC when not wearing armor is equal to 12 + your Dexterity modifier + your proficiency bonus. Furthermore, when you are forced to make a Dexterity saving throw that causes you to take half damage if you succeed, you instead take no damage if you succeed and half damage if you fail. You also become immune to paralysis and cannot be forced prone by any means unless you choose to do so as an action.
At 11th level, you have mastered the art of breathing evenly no matter the situation, increasing the amount of life force within you, effectively slowing down your aging. Your maximum age is doubled, you cannot become exhausted from using dash or from environmental hazards, when you complete a short rest, you recover double the normal amount of hit points and remove 1 level of exhaustion, and you can now use your bonus action to dash or disengage.
At at 14th level, when you are damaged by a hostile creature, you gain 1 stack of Exchange Blows. For each stack, you can make 1 additional attack when you take the Attack action. You can only have up to your proficiency bonus amount of stacks. You can use your bonus action to roll a DC 11 Constitution saving throw, gaining an extra stack of Exchange Blows on a success, as long as you have at least 1. Using extra attacks during your turn does not consume the stacks. You may spend 1 stack to attack a creature during their turn if they are within range without using a reaction. All stacks are removed once you can no longer fighting any hostile creatures.
At 17th level, your Hamon can not be stopped. You are immune to being blinded, stunned, or poisoned. You no longer take extra damage from critical hits and hostile creatures cannot gain advantage on you if you are restrained. When you use your action to regain Hamon points, you instead regain 1d4 points.
